The starting point for any passage is to take that first step. For our digital leadership path our first step is to create a community of co-learners and supports to help us along our journey. This digital support group is also known as your PLN - Personal Learning Network and it will form a solid foundation upon which to build and layer your digital skills.
Will Richardson provides a great synopsis of what a PLN is and how it can transform your learning and your practice. The video posted below is taken from the Brainwave series of videos on educational technology and 21st century digital learning. Will is one of many proponents of utilizing Twitter to establish a PLN and connect with the latest information and practices to support personal and professional learning. If you already have a Twitter account you can follow all of the updates to this site and blog by following us @leadingloudly located on the sidebar to the right. So jump in and take your first step - you are not alone.
